6 Great Apps for New Drivers

Starting out a career as an OTR driver comes with a lot of uncertainties. You may be asking:

  • Where should I fuel?
  • How can I connect with other truckers without using a CB Radio?
  • Where’s the closest truck wash?
  • Can I park and sleep in this Walmart Parking lot?
  • Is there a Wendy’s nearby? 

Thankfully, technology has come a long way and now there is an app for everything. But navigating the never-ending lists of available apps may be scarier than navigating New York. To help give you a leg up, we have put together a few popular apps for new drivers that we think you’ll want to check out. These apps will help you establish routes, keep your logs, find fuel, and stay connected with friends and family back home.
